Autobots, roll out
Remember the 7 most expensive words in business, as stated by Catherine DeVrye: “We have always done it that way!”
Yes, budgets as in plural
It takes a lot to run a business. Courage, integrity, perseverance, all topped with a considerable dose of managerial and organizational skills. But in the end, a successful business is one that brings profits, aside from beneficial products and services. And to get to the profitable part, a lot of financial planning must be done. Here’s what you should keep in mind.
Productive habits, assemble!
Ah, productivity. The almighty driver of business and life success, the sought-after excellency of all human activity, the epitome of properly-done things. Such a comprehensive concept, so few rules to achieve it. Divide and conquer. Partition and organize. That’s it.
How many apps do you need to screw in a light bulb?
So much software, so little time to try it all. So how do you choose what best fits your company? Which features are the most important? What’s the deal-breaker and what’s the deal-maker? We have some pointers.
What’s fresh in the garden
We’re keeping the ACs on and our energy high. It might be hot outside, but not as hot as the latest features we added to YArooms. So hang on to your hats or put on your sunglasses and let’s see what’s new!
On your marks, get set, play!
The modern office has lost the old-fashioned rigidity and is turning into a flexible environment, where everyone gets to feel at ease. It’s no longer required to mind your own cubicle and just do the work, having fun is part of the job too.
It’s both a sensitive and sensible situation
“How do you balance work and personal life?” It doesn’t matter who gets asked this question, but whether we address it to ourselves. And if so, what can we do to produce a valid answer? Well, first of all, how do you define a valid answer? Secondly, how do you define balance?
Communication is a two-way street
Among the challenges faced by any company, small, medium, or large, is bringing people together to work as a team and get along as a family. Top that with rifts caused by hierarchy and you’ve got yourself an even more complicated situation. It might be trickier, but it’s not insurmountable.
Lunch, brunch, munch, crunch
Food brings people together. There’s something in gathering around a table, sharing stories and information alongside a bite to eat. It’s a well-liked habit that can be transferred from the classic family to the office one with a bit of planning and patience.
Happy employee, happy company
Keep your customers satisfied, and your employees even happier. It might sound like an overused mantra, but that doesn’t make it less true. We said it before and we’ll say it again: employees are the pillars that sustain companies; so keep yours content and they’ll take you to the moon.
